Commercial cards (i.e. Business, Corporate or Purchasing cards issued to organisations to cover expenses such as fuel, procurement, and travel and entertainment) represent a major unexploited opportunity for banks in Europe. This study qualifies and quantifies the current lack of penetration through a detailed country-by-country analysis of the take-up of commercial cards to date and sizes the unexploited opportunity.
The report, which is based on extensive primary research with issuers in 15 European countries, provides international card schemes, processors and other industry players with high-quality and comprehensive market data essential for strategic planning and forecasting.
